LOL, I have to agree with this but that makes my previous question above seem kind of stupid... (really stupid) foo.gif

yep :p

@gdl you make a very fair point, thanks for answering

 

@thisisblex :

 

Yes to the shoes, I have them in blue and love them. Very comfortable as to be expected and the leather is really cool.

 

Hat... Nothing special.

 

Personally I wouldn't buy the white shirt.

FWIW, I feel that tailoring is becoming (if it hasn't already) a sweet spot for Rick. His structured side, at least for me, is much more interesting than the leathers for which he's so well known.

But yeah, RO suiting fits pretty much exclusively in SW&D territory

I fucking hate Rick's blazers, but they're definitely not basic.  The button stance is really high and the whole bottom half is very exaggerated.

Swiss, it's probably not very well-made, and it seems like you want it for the label more than anything else.  I'd pass man, it's too weird to wear with clothes that aren't Rick.

it's actually this one KJ:

 

But anyway, why do you think it's not well made? I wouldn't know, but judging by his other clothes that I've handled I'd say they're very well made..

And yeah I mostly want it because of the label and the other stuff I mentioned. But I really like the design too and haven't found any other blazers that I like that much, would you know of any that are somewhat similar?

Go for it! Just know that Rick blazers are sized really small. So if you're at all in between sizes you'll definitely want to size up.

I was trying on one of the silk spring-weight ones a few months ago, and my scrawny size 46 frame had to size up to a 50 before buttoning that button stopped being a struggle. Might be different with the other ones, but yeah-- be careful out there

I plan on removing the crepe soles so it'll be more of a flat loafer.
Definitely don't do that. Just buy loafers with the sole you want.

so for some nice outerwear options, i tried a very light julius trench (sz 2 seems to fiT!) and a devoa single button collar-less one -- construction is fantastic, in fact devoa seems pretty amazing in general, i tried a few and the sharp shouldered silhouettes are stunning, the fit is tight and very sharp cuts etc but you prob know this already it's just fun but a bit opposed to what i usu. prefer

What shop was that?
post #25843 of 38479
hard decision! i like both but with what you're wearing the devoa in blk/grey looks to mesh better imo

I like that devoa, shah. Did it look good buttoned?
